Which Half David: A Short Exerpt

Which Half David: A Short Exerpt

In this scene, American mission worker is living on the edge, running away from his marital problems, trying to outrun a police car after he had too much to drink. This excerpt gives you a glimpse of the fictional capital city of Sunay City. 

The car hit its siren and weaved through the cross-traffic in hot pursuit of the brazen fugitive. Tobin felt empowered as he laughed at the image in his side mirrors before turning left into a small alleyway. A hundred meters down, he turned right onto a smaller alley and sped out of sight into the frenzied maze of the Sunay City slum, where the crowds spill onto the streets at every hour of the day. Vendors lined each side yelling at their customers. Children played games with broken remnants of the city. Men sat at hawker stands and chatted about politics. They all were inconvenienced by the man on the motorcycle, who made their already treacherous lives that much more dangerous. The same disarray that hid Tobin in its midst, blocked the police car within the first hundred yards of the first alleyway. A motorcycle carrying twelve crates of chickens slid into the car, knocking several of them to the ground and scattering the chickens in all directions. He cursed at the police car as the officers stepped out, futilely looking for traces of the foreigner. Tobin knew he was free, and he laughed at his cleverness and dumb luck.

 

Which Half David is a modern-day retelling of the historical story of King David set in the fictional Southeast Asian nation of the Sulu Republic.
